Rajan Patel, Ph.D. is an engineer at Google.,  
Rajan also teaches Stats 202, Introduction to Data Mining, at Stanford University as a visiting instructor in the Statistics department.

Prior to joining Google, Rajan worked at Amgen, Inc. as a Senior Biostatistician and then Biostatistics manager.  At Amgen, Rajan conducted statistical analyses for early phase clinical trials and pre-clinical trials.  Rajan received his Ph.D. in from the Biostatistics department at Emory University, where he developed novel statistical methods to analyze functional connectivity of the brain using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data.
